Storyline

After not having seen each other in five years, Chris Terry goes to visit his younger sister Noelle Terry in Montréal. Their lives, both together and apart, have been turbulent ones with something toxic having affected the way they interact with each other. Chris, who has just divorced his wife Denise, is a recovering alcoholic. Although he has never served time, he has committed crimes in his past. Noelle, a drug addict, turns tricks to make ends meet. She has just completed a stint in prison. Upon Chris' arrival, Noelle proposes to Chris that they enter into a three-way with a john who will pay $500 for the trick. Noelle had been trying to find another man to do the job, but was unable to find one on such short notice. Noelle implies that she needs the money to pay off a third party, and she figures Chris owes her. Despite not identifying himself as being gay or even bisexual despite having previously had a relationship with a man, Chris agrees. As Chris and Noelle's encounter ... Written by Huggo

Inappropriately hot and funny Canadian film.
12 September 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

BLOOD is an adaptation of a play by the same name. It's a dark comedy that revolves around a brother and sister desperate to have sex with each other. The sexual tension between the two main (and only) characters was authentic, which they later confirmed during the Q&A.

What makes the film truly unique is that it was shot in one long take, four times. And they just choose the best one. The dialogue is thick, biting, and hilarious. The characters even seriously injured each other during one take and kept on going. The entire film was shot on a Montreal sound stage, with a couple of exteriors. The director explained how he tricks the eyes of his audience into not being bored by one small set by having each room a different color, and then using an occasional split screen during rapid dialogue. I thought that was pretty cool because it totally worked on me.

I like the fact that the director replaced the main characters, originally intended to be in their late forties, with young twenty-somethings. I think the sexual tension would have seemed weird and gross otherwise. Instead it was actually pretty hot. This is what Canadian film is all about. (7/10)
